Friday evening on the road, Storm Adams scored the game-winner, with just two seconds remaining in the game, to give the Prowlers the series lead, as Cornwall skated to a 7-6 comeback victory.

Entering the third period, the Prowlers held a 4-3 edge, until the Rivermen drew even 3:29 in. Jacob Dawson restored the lead two minutes later, but West Carleton wasn’t done, potting a pair to move in front, 6-5.

At the 15:05 mark Brian Landry found the target to get the Prowlers back on even terms, before Adams scored the late game-winner.

Cornwall’s offence began the contest clicking on all cylinders, as the Prowlers opened up a 4-0 lead, on two goals each from Marc Andre Labelle and Adams.

West Carleton got two back in the latter stages of the period and added another in the second stanza.

Cornwall goaltender Frederic Roy made 41 saves, while the Prowlers had 31 shots on Rivermen netminder Dave Stathos.

Despite Cornwall having five power-play opportunities and three for West Carleton, neither side scored with the man advantage.

Prowlers earning assists were JP Carey (2), Tristan Perreault-Gagnon (2), Jesse Fontaine (2), Labelle, Brandon Watt, Dylan Stacey, and Devon Burns.

The series, a best-of-five affair, sees Cornwall with a two-games-to one edge heading home to the multi-sport complex (rink 1) for a February 29 contest, at 7:30 p.m.

For a reminder on how we got to this point, please see this story about games last weekend.

Glengarry District High School’s senior boys volleyball team, fresh off its championship league play that was capped off with the SD&G title, captured silver at the November 14 EOSSAA tournament, in Renfrew.

Seeded third at the regional competition, the Gaels beat Granite Ridge (Sharbot Lake) in straight sets, on scores of 25-12 and 25-10. The boys lost to top-ranked, and host school St. Joseph’s, 25-18 and 25-20, finishing second in their pool.

The Glengarry boys met Rideau (Elgin) in their semifinal, prevailing in three sets (21-25, 25-22, and 15-11), to advance to the championship match where the boys again collided with the host Jaguars.

Coach Katherine Adams tells me that the Renfrew team featured an experienced squad led by seven fifth-year players, with a deep bench. The Gaels “played very well and connected with great hits. I’m sure we scared them [the Jaguars] a little as we had a tiny lead for much of the second set.”

In the end, the boys from Glengarry fell in straight sets, 25-18 and 25-20, taking silver.

Adams adds, “Placing second out of 45 single-A schools in EOSSAA is a great accomplishment. The athleticism on this team is promising for other sports this year.”
